Jan Vesely has received DNP-Coach's Decision in each of the last two Washington Wizards games and has been falling out of the team's playing rotation.
Throughout the season, Vesely has been a supportive teammate. He also has the support of owner Ted Leonsis and coach Randy Wittman.
“I don’t want him to step away from game playing, I want him to be ready every night,” Wittman said. “As our guys know, it can change at any minute. We’ve said that all year, with who I started and who’s played and who hasn’t played. He’s got to keep practicing hard and it’s going to come. It’s going to happen.”
The Wizards don't plan to send Vesely to the D-League, according to a league source. It is clear, however, that he has seen a decline in playing time since being moved to the starting lineup on Nov. 26.
